Commercial Property Maintenance

Year-Round Maintenance Programs

You need only one company to care for your property’s grounds all year.

During the warm months, rest easy knowing the team at Carpenter & Costin will keep your property looking sharp with well-maintained lawns, planters, mulch, shrubs and seasonal clean-ups.

In the cold months, we are well-equipped with an up to date fleet of trucks, front-end loaders and sidewalk machines. All this equipment is equipped with the latest technology to manage small-office building parking lots as well as large lots, such as hospitals, shopping centers and institutional campuses. We understand the critical importance of fast and effective snow removal coupled with accurate data collection, which is why all our equipment is equipped with GPS. When the snow flies, our teams will remove snow and ice to keep your property safe and clean, while allowing your employees and customers safe passage.
